"Winter is coming"
A hackneyed phrase for a hackneyed destination?
So why not explore this Himalayan land off-season, before things change.
Here are five reasons, why you should travel to Ladakh this February.
Reason #1 – Drive through constantly changing landscapes.
The first thing one notices in Ladakh in winter is that here the landscape changes every day, every hour and just driving through this pristine and untouched white Ladakh is in itself a beautiful journey.
Right from the glittering ice on the frozen Indus River by the road as the sun comes up to how the sun kissed peaks in the clear distance light up at sunset, every minute you drive through this high altitude desert brings you closer to the beauty there is in this world.
Reason #2 – Have the popular tourist spots all to yourself.
Prayer flags flutter in the cool crisp breeze against the stark backdrop of the snow covered mountains touching the flat white sky and there isn’t a soul in sight. This however isn’t just a one off experience when you make that random stop along your road trip.
